Our star has risen! Today we Israelis celebrate sixty years of hard-won statehood, independence, and freedom.
In honor of Independence Day my next-door neighbor put up a flag pole and flags and even flashing colored lights. Last night the sky over Jerusalem was lit up with marvelous fireworks, and we had a good view from our village. Happy 60th birthday, dear country, and many more!
